The Haldeman Interview

H.R. Haldeman as Mad Man, Don Draper

That is exactly the time. He was in New York for part of that time. He was one of the senior guys at J. Walter Thompson. It's Madison Avenue of that era. Except for the drinking, and the smoking, and the womanizing part, basically, he was Don Draper. It's been fun watching that.
